The average consumer couldn't care less about the size of the battery as long it lasts the same amount of time. In fact, they don't really care about specs AT ALL as long as theirs a flashy somewhat gimmicky feature (3D touch) and they get good performance and speed.

@ arch_angel - I really wish this is an epic fail and slap on apple face.. where was the excitment, innovation etc gone? look like steve took all those along with him... Apple is capable of making revolutionay phones if they can, but now they have taken there loyal fan base for granted and playing around. Once they burn there hands, they will realize the real pressure and value of people money and time, when all the stake holders kicking there ass, then comes the creativity, innovation and excitment..... I still use an iphone, and buy there phone ever year, cause i am so much stuck with its echo system. every year i phone a better phone and it is just another screen up or speed up.... My only concern all the time about iphones is Battery life.... i will wait for the day when i will carry my phone without and external power bank............ uffffffffff

If you know anything about phone releases, you knew ages ago that this phone would look exactly like last years phone with upgraded specs. As far as innovation, what the heck are you looking for dude? To me, 3D touch is innovation especially for an S model. Touch ID(how it works) was also innovation when it was released. The problem with people like you is that you're spoiled and sound like a spoiled brat. As far as Steve Jobs, he had his hand on the 4S, 5 and the 5S(same as 5). To, me things would mostly be the same if he was still around.....actually, it would be worst. The 6 plus wouldn't exist and iOS wouldn't have certain features we now enjoy.

you never know what steve would have done.... as i mentioned all the 3D touch, WiFi upgrade, CPU speed increase etc, what will you do with it if u got a smaller battery? All i want is all those awsome futures with a better battery capacity which will lost whole day with heavy usage... Is that too much to expect or ask for what we pay? And u call 3D touch an innovation? when u have 6s in your hand u know exactly a first time innovation would work like. It will create lot of fuss until u used to it. It is cool but look like u need to practice how to use it. touch id is there for two generations now and u cant call it a innovation. Look at sony where they placed the touch id. apple would have get rid of those top and bottom bezzles by removing the homebotton. It would have been revolutionary if apple would have implanted the touhcid to the screen itself. People always have higher expectation for Apple, and there is no wrong in it.

not yet.. they'll say something like "30millions pre-order during first week", "record breaking iPhone pre-order", "apple adding another 100thousand worker to fulfill strong demand for new phone".. no one will bother to confirm that tough

Even if they sold more than last year, it would be just blind sheep party/ epic fail. Bassically there wasn't a moment in Apple's history they wern't "epically failing". Btw. Even the "epic fail" iPhone 5C, sold more than any other phone in the end of 2013 and probably 2014 as well.

I disagree, I love my Lumia 1520 I would get 2 to 4 days of battery, and before you say anything about apps, all the apps I had on android I had on my Lumia 1520, so I had no problem, I do not download huge amounts of apps, so I had a lot of gigs left with my 16 gig, not counting the 64 gig for the micro sd, and the 120gig microsoft one drive cloud. I saved everything on my OneDrive since I have a ton of data with AT&T so thats another reason I had space even though I was taking RAW photos which took up a lot of memory. Out of all the phones I had in the past from HTC, Galaxy Note series, Motorola atrix and etc, the Lumia 1520 goes down as the best phone I ever use.......no reboots, no slow down after a year like every android phone have, no slow down with future updates........and out of all the people that complain about Windows phone 10 beta it had the least problems compare to any other phone even with the Lumia 930 which people kept saying was the best windows phone because it had a smaller screen and easier to hold. Movies was great on it, and it look beautiful, anyone who seen it always said it was beautiful, never had a case because polycarbonate is very hard, it fell multiple times and not one scratch on the screen.....Shout out to Nokia for making the best phone alive

Yes, their amazingly successful phones are always "epically failing". Lol, the things some Fandroids say.

sheep will not believe that because to them Apple is the creator of all things electronics. You know what's funny? I work at a social service and I see a lot of these people on food stamps and welfare having iphones. lol

NO BODY thinks APPLE is the creator of all things electronics... You're posting this bs, so you and your buddies can reference back to it (because you read it somewhere).... I work everywhere (i'm a contractor) and good neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods have a good mix of iOS and Android phones. Stop posting this crap, it's annoying..

Deny it all you want, that's the impression iSheeps have been giving for a while now. Point anything out to them that Apple copied, they'll come up with a reason why it can't be Apple that copied. The same will happen when rose-gold S7 comes, despite Samsung doing it earlier with Note 3, iSheeps will still be bahing that Samsung copied the color, turning a blind eye to Samsung's past work...

what's funny about that? they're smart enough to buy an iphone with welfare money,i have seen homeless with ipads and even a macbook.

Very ignorant comment. Galaxy phones are worth just as much and the way carriers have these payment plans now anyone can pretty much have an iPhone.
